Cape Town – MWEB Gaming announced that the first MWEB Celebrity Gaming Showdowns will take place on Friday 12 April at the Trinity Lounge in Green Point.

The first contestants in the 2UpGamers line-up will be the Good Hope FM female radio personalities, Geri Olwagen and TammyB.

Geri and Tammy will be racing in Forza 4 on the Top Gear Test track to see who can set the fastest “clean” lap time.

The contestants will also have the opportunity to race with a standard controller and the Xbox wireless speed wheel. They will be competing for the first prize of an Advanced Driving Course and a medal.

“The intention behind the MWEB Celebrity Gaming Showdowns is to showcase the fun of multiplayer gaming to a ‘mainstream’ audience,” said Desmond Kurz, Online Gaming Manager at MWEB. 

“The hope is that these initiatives will continue to grow the already-booming online multiplayer community.”

MWEB is planning to host more Celebrity Gaming Showdowns in future but the dates are not yet confirmed.

2UpGamers attendees will also be able to compete to post their fastest lap, with the fastest gamer on the night also winning an Advanced Driving Course.
